Nancy Green, cello 

Strings Magazine Editor's Choice July 2010
"The cello takes center stage on Jaguar Songs (Cello Classics), a robust and engaging recording of contemporary works by Venezuelan composer Paul Desenne. The gifted cellist Nancy Green, who studied with Jacqueline du Pré and has won numerous awards, plays all the parts: for solo, three, and four cellos. Desenne has a knack for blending 18th-century Bach counterpoint and 21st-century cello technique. The title work is a four-movement suite for solo cello. Desenne explains that in Amazonian mythology, the jaguar represents blood and death. Whether these visceral pieces are sculpted as soundscapes or dances, Green supplies immediacy and power to these performances." G.C.
